Places on sale & selling fast for PTO Lake Las Vegas T100

The Professional Triathletes Organisation -PTO – has announced that places for the 100km amateur triathlon at its Lake Las Vegas T100 event on 19-20 October, 2024, went on sale this week…and are selling fast.

The PTO released general entries as well as a limited number of exclusive packages, including hotel accommodation at the stunning Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa, for the challenging 2km swim, 80km bike and 18km run course that will take place around the picturesque Lake Las Vegas on the grounds of Reflection Bay Golf Club.

Commenting on the initial interest, PTO CEO Sam Renouf said: “It’s been hugely exciting to have put entries on sale for the 100km amateur triathlon on Sunday 20 October and then to see the demand – both for general sales as well as for the number of exclusive packages offering three nights at Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa. They are already selling fast and I’d encourage anyone wanting to join us at Lake Las Vegas to get in quick for what promises to be a signature event on the T100 Triathlon World Tour!

“I know I said something similar when we announced this race at the start of the year, but a huge thank you must go to Mayor Romero of Henderson for sharing our vision for bringing world class triathlon to the city and helping to navigate all the different and often complex approvals. Thanks also to Cody Winterton of Raintree, who will be working with the PTO to put on the event, and Greg Gooding, the General Manager of The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa, who’ll be hosting us in their impressive resort and grounds. Today’s news only brings things a step closer.”

In what promises to be an action packed weekend, the world’s top 20 female and top 20 male professional triathletes in the world will race on consecutive days in Nevada, in what will be the sixth leg of the inaugural T100 Triathlon World Tour that also visits Singapore (13-14 April), San Francisco (8-9 June), London (27-28 July), Ibiza (28-29 September) and Dubai (16-17 October) before finishing with the T100 Grand Final on 29-30 November.

After two rounds in Miami and Singapore, American favourite Sam Long has cemented his place as second in the T100 standings to Dutch wildcard Youri Keulen and has already circled the Lake Las Vegas date in his diary, saying: “I’ve said that I’m looking forward to a lot of things in 2024, including the T100 Tour and getting married. So to have this kind of a race only a stone’s throw from where I’m based and train in Tucson will be awesome. I plan on preparing to win because that will make my post race bachelor party that much more epic! Yo Yo Yo!” Great Britain’s Lucy Charles-Barclay leads the T100 standings for the women, ahead of Australian Ashleigh Gentle.
